Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Just looking for a new circut to run as a team event, where you would fish with another guy in your boat as a team, not by myself.

I have a guy that is looking to get into fishing, but want to fish with him in tournaments to get his feet wet.

Websites and Information would be great. Thanks

Go to classic bass website. Just type Classicbass no space into google. The first site on the page is where you want to go. There you can get a list of most tourneys info and dates for the entire season and corresponding web sites. There are a number of team tourneys that would fit the bill. Good Fishing!!

There is another, but I don't recall the name that works the same area. The entry fees are considerably higher though.

The other one was MN Anglers Choice. smile.gif I have fished the Midwest Sportsman circuit for two years and fished the classic back in 05 on KY lake, which was fun too, and will fish it again this year. This year's schedule has the best lake selection since I've started fishing it.

Denny's Super 30's are all being held on a weekday and all on Minnetonka this year. Denny's also has a Wednesday Night you can fish one or all it is up to you. The nice thing about the Wednesday nighters is that you can fish it alone or with a partner because you can only weigh 5 fish. Extreme Bass also has a Thursday night schedule on Prior have never fished it myself but may this year. There is a really fun tourney I fished the last few years in Canada on Lake of the Woods called bassinforbucks (just put that into google and the site will be the first on the list) the first weekend after Labor Day. It is a 3 day team event with daily payouts and a three day aggregate payout. The field is limited to 120 boats. There are currently only 8 or 9 slots left and it will be a full feild. It is a really good time unfortunately I will have to miss it this year because it conflicts with the B.A.S.S. ESPN series. The other team tourney I like is the Minnetonka Classic it will be on June 2nd this year. Good luck in whatever you decide. Good Fishing!!

Regarding the Super 30's- In his news letter he wrote that it gives you the weekend to pre-fish and less traffic during the tourney. They will all be held on Mondays with the exception of the AIA, it will be on the Tuesday after Memorial day. Good excuse for a 3 day weekend. laugh.giflaugh.gif

Big Bass Bonanza is a good circuit, well run, good sticks if you like a little competition. Their lakes are in central MN. I believe they are fishing Sauk Lake, Minnewaska, Horseshoe Chain, Alex Chain, Rice Lake for the TOC An 8 fish limit. Very good lakes this year, most of the lakes mentioned will take 25+ to win, Sauk could take 30+, Minnewaska, smallies always play a part in the winning bag, Horseshoe, you cna get lost out there if your not careful, but full of piggies, Alex chain the winning weights have been going up in recent years, Rice, very good fall lake. Reasonable entry fees, decent payouts, but some of the best Central MN angling teams, so you have to bring your A game to run with these boys.

Horseshoe? Stay home! wink.gif The chain gets pounded, and if you don't get your fish before 9, you are toast! Most come from long points early, otherwise you are slop fishing, and that gets old. smile.gif

From my experience, compared to other lakes in the area, the fish per acre in this chain is quite low. Big fish? You are better off on ANY other lake. The only time big fish come off the chain are in the late fall, and then not that many as compared to other lakes in the same area. Like I said in my previous post, it gets hammered all summer and winter.

Superduty

There are plenty of big fish in the chain. It's one of my favorite tournament bodies of water. First of all it's huge and people can really spread out. Second, with all the different lakes there are many different ways to catch fish at the same time. It may not be the easiest body of water to learn in a short time, but it will take a 3lb average or better to win on most days. You might even catch a big smallie and a catfish as a bonus! The recreational boating crowd is getting bigger every year. Lots of boat traffic to deal with on a hot summer weekend.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.  
    • Wanderer
      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.
    • Hawg
      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel. 
    • PRO-V
      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
